    Default Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP)

    Lets all contribute pics and memories to this timeless classic that has faithfully served generations. It is my 1st car memory and my dad who is a Beetle enthusiast at one time had a total of 4 beetles in our garage Here's a little history of this miraculous German wonder: 'The history of the Beetle really goes back to pre 2nd world war Germany when Ferdinand Porsche had a vision of a mass produced vehicle that was affordable to the average German, an idea that was shared with the young Adolf Hitler who himself could not drive, but was a car fanatic. Hitler was apparently influenced by the achievements of Henry Ford and his production lines - reading Ford's biography while in prison during 1923. Porsche had previously worked on some other small cars that used many elements later to be included in the Beetle. The Type 32 prototype NSU of 1934 was an air-cooled rear engined four cylinder horizontally opposed powered car that used torsion bar suspension and featured beetle-like styling.' --- source - Google.co.uk lets keep the posts rolling - add pics of bugs you've owned or own! I'll add my dad's bug family pics as well ... I guess he fell in love with this oddly shaped car after he drove it down to Pakistan from Germany!!!! .. stories of that wonderous journey keep us entertained whenever our family gets together


    Mod edit: thread title changed in May 2008
    Never give up .. cuz that is when the tide will change!...

    looks promising...but thats where my passenger used to sit

    I was more inclined towards the classic swamp cooler look...i would rather go for a cooler that works at speed hanging outside the car complemented by a proper one someplace inside the car...someplace that doesnt take up all the cabin space...maybe in the hood with a duct coming through the radio face plate housing?

    That share was just a thought...probably more of "Everything is possible" note

    Go for replication of Uni-Vents then...its easy and they are efficient: TheSamba.com :: VW Classifieds - Rare NOS Bug Uni Vents 1949-1977

    Check and compare the position of the key entry lineup grooves on all three of L/R/M types and you would note the difference.

    For selection of Correct Key for your bug, go to the "Owner's Manual Section" on the Samba. Open your year manual, on third/fourth page the key profile for your year would be shown in form of key(s) with profile written on it. Now you know what profile is correct for your bug for sure. Fish & buy out whatever profile you want at eBay/TheSamba.

    You can start looking from here: TheSamba.com :: View topic - Is this Uni-Vent or an alternative?

    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -315187

    say hello to the new gearbox mounts
    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -315188

    brake cylinders have also been rebuilt
    Volkswagen Club of Pakistan VWCOP -315189

    Were the syncro rings/bearings done too on @funkycapricorn's tranny? If so, who did the job? Mumtaz or Khalid Sb.?

    @nmshaikh's Shahzadi (GT Beetle) looks more sober after removal of the stickers. And since Billo was awarded NOC for import back home, cant wait to see her joining Shahzadi sometime soon

    yup, syncros done, sadly the starter needed a rebuild so it isn't on the road yet. maybe today.

    no doubt the flames on the GT were a bit of an eyesore, cool thing was that the future owner of the car was the one to remove them (his son). as for the NOC,... you have no idea how excited nasir was. i went with him to go get the paperwork, was like being with a very happy kid (all smiles).

    We still didn't get to know who replaced the syncros on @funkycapricorn's car? Keen to know this as Patina needs same kind of job sometime soon on her tranny.

    About Abdullah removing the flames on Shahzadi, good to know the fact that the next generation VDubbers are already taking up the driving seat

    mumtaz changed the syncros. as for the flames, glad to know the car went back to stock, and he's showing major interest in VWs,.. afterall his dad probably has the nicest collection of VW's in PK.

    Good to know that among others known who could work on a tranny, Mumtaz has joined the club of a very few ppl here in Pakistan who could re-do a tranny.

    I hope all goes well with the tranny once its mounted and performs flawlessly on the bug.

    @funkycapricorn Plz do keep us posted on how does it perform.

    This one is currently mounted on my 1965 Beetle and performing like a champ despite the fact that a few things are messed up about it as can be seen. Butterfly is repaired but is working without leaking.

    Having said that, I thought may be it would be a good idea to post the pictures of the same here and try and source a replacement (for future - when there a need be). So if any of you have or know of a piece lying around with someone in better a condition than this piece please PM me. Thanks in advance.

    That's great news. Please save the next best for me (if possible) once the best one is picked out by him for your 61 project. That would ease me out mentally. I can always pick up two rebuild kits from @nmshaikh - one for the current 28PICT and the other to go on the 28PICT/1 that you would save for me.
